Pale straw in color, the wine exhibits aromas of fresh pear, hints of tropical fruit and subtle spice highlights. These characters follow through onto the palate where they are combined with ripe, citrus flavors and an enveloping texture. The palate is lingering and culminates with natural sweetness and balanced acidity. This classic, easy-drinking Pinot Grigio is ideally suited to a wide range of dishes including baked seasonal fish, Caesar style chicken salads and lightly spiced Asian cuisine. Whilst enjoyed young, this wine will cellar gracefully for up to 3 years. Serve lightly chilled.
